Before we left our DCP program, we went to a Resume Writing Workshop at the Career Center at Disney University.
It’s not easy thinking about how to add the DCP internship experience to your resume.
They gave us a lot of good resume writing tips, including the employment verification info which is really hard to find!
Some more tips:
Remember, Leaders and Coordinators can’t give out formal recommendation letters to CPs.
But, you should have received a written End of Program Evaluation from your coordinator before your last day. You can use this to document your program participation dates.
The number to verify Disney employment is:
(800) 800-4857, ext. 9000, Mon-Fri 8am-8pm EST
It costs $20US to verify your employment at the Walt Disney Company. They will only verify that you were employed by Disney as a cast member and the dates that you were employed. They have employment dates for all Disney Company subsidiaries, including Disney Parks and Resorts, Disney Cruise Line, etc.
They will not give out salary info, specific job info other than Cast Member, points/reprimands, or rehire status. The company that Disney hired to do their employment verification for them (Vjsus) has no access to that personnel information.

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
